Narrate in first person: Perhaps the scenarios could be made more direct 
by having either all of it in first person, or a pull quote or teaser at 
the beginning of the person speaking about what it means to them.

Under "Retiree with several ageing-related conditions" the phrase "could 
not back up" is rather obscure I think.

Mention that some of the people had used the WAI document "How to Report 
Inaccessible Websites" [1] although it is still a draft. For example, 
under "she could convince the bank to fix some of the problem", or the 

Perhaps one of the people would be able to find accessible content using 
labels defined in the recently approved W3C POWDER labelling format. As 
described in the use cases [2]. Perhaps this is premature as no such 
production-scale system exists yet for accessibility.

Perhaps it would be useful to include a low-income user. Perhaps a 
person who is elderly now and has an old computer or assistive 
technology and can not afford to upgrade, or is given a hand-me-down 
computer by their children.

Ditto a user in developing country with non-optimum infrastructure.

For "Scenario References" perhaps UAAG, ATAG and WCAG are not 
overlapping and people would appreciate having this split up so they can 
read only WCAG references, or only ATAG, etc.
